Big bone head.

It's not every day that you purchase a cow's skull. This is what occasioned the rather bizarre conversation that I had with my brother (Cameron, he was 5 at the time). I purchased it for the amazing bargain price of just $10 from Rozelle Markets on sunny Saturday morning, after about an hour of me schlepping it around in a green woolies bag he stopped me dead in my tracks, stood straight in front of me and looked me in the eye, asking "Natty, why did you buy that big bone head?".

Cow's skull
The answer I gave him was that I purchased it for my students to draw. I remember spending hours at uni drawing various animal skulls and skeletons, attempting to get the shading correct, render the most intricate of shapes and observing the fall of the light. While never reaching the level of being a particularly 'good' drawer, this practice certainly gave me a far greater appreciation for the subtleties of light and the sumptuous curves that nature makes look so effortless.

The cow skull may be kind of creepy, it may be a little macabre, but it still has some amazingly beautiful qualities. The texture of the old bone is enchanting, and the shapes created by its various structures are actually really stunning to observe. I'm rather glad that I went out shopping one sunny Saturday morning and came home with a big bone head.
